Clevedon Hall, off Elton Road, is expanding its offering with a new orangery.

The approved orangery designs have been carefully considered to remain in-keeping and to complement the hall.

The venue tries to combine history and tradition with modern luxury and is used for weddings, business meetings, parties and away day team-building courses.

Construction on the new addition is set to be completed by mid-autumn.

The orangery will be an extension of the hall, enhancing the provision of the facilities and seating up to 160 guests.

It will feature large floor to ceiling windows alongside an impressive atrium running the length of the space to maximise light and give guests an open-air experience.

Solar-protective glass and underfloor heating will allow people to make use of the space all year round.

Managing director of Clevedon Hall, James Matthew, said: “It is fantastic to finally be able to say our new orangery is underway, and it is great to see the Clevedon Hall offering continue to grow and develop together with our clientele.

“The orangery will bring so much value to the existing hall, providing more space in a unique location, ensuring our clients continue to choose Clevedon Hall as their preferred event space in the future.”

The new orangery will replace the existing one on the right side of the building and planning permission was approved by North Somerset Council earlier this month.

The 150-year-old Victorian mansion underwent an extensive restoration from 2010 and officially opened in 2014.

Finishing touches to the £4.2million restoration were completed in 2016 to make it into a luxury wedding venue.

There are 25 en-suite bedrooms and a Great Hall which were all redesigned in their own style as part of the revamp.
